Active Peace Yoga at Bhakti Fest

Reginald Hubbard is on the 2023 Bhakti Fest agenda. We met years ago. Reggie was a big wig for an even bigger wig. I managed media relations for a major national civil rights convention attracting 10,000 people. In 2022, I found Reggie at an online yoga retreat, and my respect for him soared. Working in […]

The Woodstock for Yogis Returns to Joshua Tree

  Bhakti Fest is my favorite place for top-notch, round-the-clock yoga, kirtan, and satsang (spiritual discussions). The festival has been a mainstay in my travel schedule for more than ten years.

Reflections on Spiritual India and Israel

I’m a wanderlust. Solo journeying is part of my DNA. I first ventured outside of the U.S., alone, at age 16. Wherever I am, I incorporate several hours a day of yogasana, breathwork, and meditation.

Jahnavi Harrison: Divine Songstress 

Jahnavi on Tour I’ve always had a preference for female vocalists. Maybe because it’s easier for me to sing along. Or, because it’s easier to hear the subtle differences between my singing and that of my favorite chanteuses. When I listen to Jahnavi Harrison chant, as much as I may be right in tune with […]
